They both:

- have variables,

- are open sentences,

- consist of two expressions joined by a "verb" (equals or inequality sign),

- have solution sets (which may be empty or have one or more elements).

### What are the similarities between equation and inequalities?

They both can be negative or positive answer

### What are the similarities and differences between equation and inequalities?

An equation has a defined answer. An inequality can have a range of answers. 2x=46 x must be 23. m&lt;1 m can be from 0.999 repeating to -&infin;.

### What is the similarities of solving equations and inequalities?

You solve an inequality in exactly the same was as you solve an equation, by doing the same thing to both sides. The only difference is if you multiply/divide by a negative number, when you have to turn the inequality around.

### How are the rules for solving inequalities similar to those for solving equations?

Solving inequalities and equations are the same because both have variables in the equation.

### How are equations and inequalities similar?

The boundary of an inequality is formed by the corresponding equation.

### Why are linear equation and linear inequalities not solved in the same manner?

Although there are similarities, the solutions to a linear equation comprise all points on one line: a one-dimensional object. The solutions to a linear inequality comprise all points on one side [or the other] of a line: a two-dimensional object.

### What is an equation composed of?

An equation is composed of mathematical statements, which can be arranged to result in a series of equations/inequalities which can be solved for each unknown.

### How are linear inequalities and linear equations the same?

They are not. An inequality cannot, by definition, be the same as an equation.

### When graphing inequalities which inequality line is solid?

The line that includes whatever variables are included in the equation.

### How would inequalities be shown on a line?

actually by using the line of equation !! the inequalities might be showed!! im nt suree its a guess!! it depends on ur grade but im pretty sure that it does make some sense

### Mathematical sentence that compares expressions that are equal?

It is called an equation. Sometimes it is called an equality to differentiate from inequalities such as x &gt; 10.
